About Me

Hi, I’m Roman, I’m a part time traveller and globally life enjoyer. My life can be resumed as get any opportunities coming by. As a traveller, I try to flow with the wind and find good spot (screw guide books and day-tours) I aim to use couchsurfing to meet nice people to hang with, share beers, good times, music, and good food (ooooh yeah), I love to cook for people.
Im always open to whatever looks like funny stuff to do or experience something new.

I do make music, videos, photography, partying, having nonsense discussions, eating and cooking. I like also overscaled things, I don't know why, I think it's way too fun.
I really love to discover out of path/underground/hidden cool places of some cities. Thats why I like to surf couches, you know what’s better in town than any blog/book.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

What a good way to get the best experience from a place you crash by. Just meet people and feel the place from their perspective
I just hate city guide books. I believe that the most interesting stuffs are known by the locals and the best way to experience them is to share it with people. I love to discover unknown and underground spots. Sharing is caring, so let's do this!
I do not host surfers for now as I don’t have my proper home for now. But as soon as it’ll be set, my flat’s gonna be open.

I already did a few couchsurfing stops (I'm actually writing this at a couchsurf host house), with my girlfriend. As I'm traveling alone now, I do my own profile, so no feedbacks but I'm not a newbie in this community 😊

Interests

I really love music. I love to go to concerts, parties. From the biggest to the smallest. I also produce music with and i’m a synthesizers freak.. I'm a "DJ" also. Even if I hate this word.
Basically I just love to give people material to get crazy on. Mainly in a ruff way.

Anyway, I also love images. From movies, paintings, drawings, graffiti, engravings, photography, generative computer based arts, mapping, illustrations, ... I love to go to exhibitions, especially local artists ones.
I do also movie clips, engraving and random pictural stuffs.
I'm also a formerly product and graphic designer. But I tend to switch my career as a sound designer as Designing things appEared to be reaaaaaally boring experience.

Except the art-based interests, I really like to get beers or more with people, speaking about everything, get stupid, chilling in the nature with beer and people (yeah once again I know ... ^^), but also just relax in a hammock with good music or looking at waves crushing on the rocks from a cliff with good smoke.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music:
Hip-hop - electronic - idm - psychedelic - 60's - weird - cumbia - noise - chill out - dub - blues - 50's rock - dubstep - jungle - good rap - breakcore - classical - ethnic - Asian vibes ...
Basically a lot.

Movie:
I like gangster and war movie. I'm not really picky, mostly because I got asleep really easily if the couch is a tiny bit comfortable.

Books:
I don't read that much... Just got into it recently. The last book which has really got me in: Oro by Cizia Zickë

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Cruising whole Mexico on a motorcycle even if I never have ridden one in my life 😊
(Update: And ended up falling down and get over lucky out of this)
((Update 1.2: diving with sharks))

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you some French, how to cook some European dishes, touching the top of your nose with your tongue (even if you won't ^^), some photo-video-music editing tricks with computer, some scratching techniques (yes, the noises with the hands on the records of your parents) or how to survive in a French speaking environment.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Essentially good vibes, good music, good spots to chill, chatting about everything with beers. except political stuffs. It never leads to something good..

Oh, did I already talk about beers ?
